I dropped my car off today (http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=26842) at the dealers to have my gearbox/clutch/vibrating when pulling off whe cold problem looked at and as my loan car I got a nice 06 plate 2.0 TDI S-line Sportback, with pimped (tint'd) windows, etc, etc... looks quite nice (dare I say it (now don't start I'm barely just passing judgement) for a sportback. Anyway... During my drive home (normal route) I'm thinking hang-on why isn't my 2.0 TDI 3 door as nippy (fast) as this? It's seems to be very quick off the mark and so much smoother over the same humps and pot holls as I'm always challenged with and even just normal driving it seems... well better and easier to drive. Now i'm sure this isn't just me, but how come the Sportback seems 1) better balanced than a 3 door, 2) quicker and 3) quieter? The sportback has only done 1.5k but it's probably had some stick being a loan car, and to be honest mine hasn't had any stick and it's only done 20k since March 05. So why has mine gone down hill so quick??? I must admit I had expected more from an Audi. Could all these things be related to my clutch/gearbox/vibrating when pulling away in 1st type problem? Also in the sportbacks favor it does look very nice with that new front end....!! I need to be getting that votex front splitter on mine when I get it back!! Has anyone else noticed the same type of change when getting a loan or hire car??
